Dear sir,

I recd a letter this morning from Mr Pleasants, covering a check on the Branch Bank of the United States at this place for $118, which I have passed to your credit as directed—

The Ton of Lump Plaistre you ordered, was ford on the 18th Inst: by Wren’s Boats, care W. D. Fitch Milton, & I hope has reached you before this.

With great respect Dr sir Yours very Truly

B. Peyton

I have not [been]1 able to get the note discounted you gave me at Monticello—


RC (MHi); dateline beneath full signature; mistakenly endorsed by TJ as a letter of 20 Mar. 1822 received eight days later and so recorded in SJL.
